I'd love a 2000ad boardgame of some kind. These things have moved on so much since the 80s, there must be space for one. Even if it was crowd-funded, to gauge support, I'd be well up for it.

Definitely a gap in the market.  I wonder how many people still play Block Mania (I'm going to guess now that Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper don't have the replayability as Block Mania and Mega Mania).

I was pleasantly surprised to find Block Mania at Gen Con a couple of years back - they played an epic match with 6 blocks involved, was very entertaining.

Recently I dug up the old Rogue Trooper game to introduce it to my new gaming group (me being the Eldster with all these ancient games).

Been working on something of a minor homebrew expansion to add some new cards.  Also reworked the old WD #90 cards so they would look more like the original set (that always bugged me).

If anyone is interested, feel free to check it out on the Board Game Geek page

Just spent a pleasant morning playing Forbidden Island with the kids.

Ideal fun for under 10s. I know it's been mentioned before, but the sheer joy of seeing their excitement when playing something that isn't plugged in warrants a reminder.

Try The Magic Labyrinth sometime.  My kids (5 & 7) really enjoy the interactive nature of the 'invisible' walls.

Looks great. But it's £67 on Amazon!!

Holy heck!

It was only $20 at Target.  Wonder if Target UK has it, or if you can have it shipped to one of them?

The Germany eBay classifieds site also had a bunch at pretty good prices.
